Acer have just officially announced the launch of the new beTouch E120 and the E130 Android based smartphones. The E120 will be available form mid-July while the E130 will land in August.

Acer release the new Acer Aspire One D260

by: James TromansJune 9, 2010

Aspire One D260

The Acer Aspire One D260 is a Windows 7 netbook with a difference, it can come with Android. Ok, so it is not that different, but booting up via Android in 15 seconds is always worth a shout out. In general, this device is pretty sound. The keyboard is a highly responsive 93% standard-size keyboard and the battery will last 8 hours. Available in a host of colors (Black Flake, Purple Flake, Pink Flake and Charcoal Flake), we think that this device is surely set to appeal to a wide range of consumers.

Getting into the technical specifications, the display itself is LED backlit and comes with an Acer CrystalEye webcam. In terms of [...]

by: James TromansJune 1, 2010

Acer Liquid E Ferrari

Acer are set to release an updated version of their Liquid handset, endorsed by Ferrari. Although the press release we received only goes so far in covering the technical specifications of this device, we believe that the Liquid E Ferrari will come with Android 2.1 and a 3.5-inch touchscreen. It will run off a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip and packs a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and geotagging features.

Acer Liquid E Ferrari special edition is the most exclusive smartphone in the world, dedicated to those who refuse to settle for mere perfection and demand something extra from their technological devices: passion, [...]

Video: Acer Liquid Stream gets Official

by: James TromansMay 28, 2010

After all the leakages we faced earlier in the week, Acer have officially unveiled the Acer Stream. As far as I am aware, this will be the companies first smartphone offering running Android 2.1 Eclair. Things have come a long way for Acer and the smartphone since this time last year.

Indeed, as we suspected, the Stream will run on a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 512MB of RAM. In terms of on-board storage, the Stream will pack a healthy 2GB but is expandable via the microSD card slot (presumably up to 32GB). The camera takes shots up to 5MP and will offer 720p HD video recording. In the modern day higher-end smartphones, 720p HD video recording usually means a HDMI [...]

Acer CEO reveals 7-inch Android tablet for Q4 2010

by: James TromansMay 27, 2010

Acer 7-inch Android Tablet

Tech lifestyle blog shufflegazine have taken few snap shots at a recent press event held by Acer over in Beijing. As far as we are concerned, the highlight of the event has to be the unveiling of the company’s 7-inch Android tablet. This is especially sweet given that not so long ago Acer denied ever wanting to get involved in the tablet market, let along with Android at the helm.

Lanci, the Acer CEO, failed to let-loose any juicy specifications for us to get our claws into, however, he did hint at a fourth quarter launch. We’ll believe it when we see it. The only other thing that Shufflegazine are [...]

Acer ‘Liquid Stream’ S110 with 720p video recording

by: James TromansMay 26, 2010

Acer S110 Liquid Stream

The Acer Liquid Stream comes courtesy of Phandroid, who spotted the device at Google I/O the other day. Well, Acer certainly look as though they are upping their game as the device has recently received FCC approval.

To start, the device is alleged to offer Android 2.1 which is rumored to evolve into 2.2 either by release or soon after. The core processor is a tastey Snapdragon and helps record 720p video via the 5 megapixel camera. There are whispers that this device could land in Europe this October, and because of the radio 850 / 1900MHz HSPA its quite possible that this puppy will crop up in the USA pretty soon too.

by: James TromansMarch 23, 2010

Acer Liquid

About this time last year we attended an Acer press launch in London, UK, detailing the companies intent to break into the mobile phone market. Since then, things have been pretty slow moving, but consistent. We have been keeping up to date on the Acer smarphone situation and announced back Decemeber 2009 when the Acer Liquid went on sale for the first time with Expansys. Now we can confirm that the Acer A1 Liquid will be available to the UK market from the high-street retailer,  The Carphone Warehouse.

“We are committed to offering the widest range of the best smartphones to our customers and are excited to bring the Acer Liquid, one [...]

While we were covering the 2010 Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona last week, I had Russ Jefferies run over to the Acer booth to get some hands on time with the “new” Acer Liquid e.  I use quotes around new because this device is basically a regular Liquid that got an OS update and some new colors.  The video is below:

Similar to the FCC, Bluetooth Special Interest Group is a fountain of information regarding forthcoming devices and new gadgets. In this particular instance, we have picked up some healthy snippets of news concerning the E110 by Acer.
